ALF (who sits statue still and doesn't blink an eye) is then set up as part of the toy pile for the kids. One little girl decides that she'd like him for a present; she imagines, however, that ALF is a female and names him "Amanda." Back in her hospital room, the girl - whose name is Tiffany - has "tea" with ALF and then starts to dress him up. When Tiffany is about to put earrings on him, ALF finally opens his mouth and explains that he's a male. Tiffany is surprised and delighted. ALF has a long talk with her, explaining who he is and from where he has come.
ALF finally is able to sneak out to the main area of the hospital. It is there that he hears the doctor talking with Mr. Foley. Tiffany, apparently, will never see another Christmas.
ALF returns to Tiffany's room and has a long talk with her about his own experience losing his world, and having to enter a new one. Tiffany is comforted by his insight, and ALF is intrigued by her strength. He stays with her until she falls asleep, and then leaves her room with a tear in his eye.
